Hardworking and stylish, Edna Ferber’s much-loved Emma McChesney returns in this sequel to Roast Beef, Medium. Now sharing her spotlight with her son, Jock, our heroine struggles to accept her child’s newfound freedom.
Personality Plus – Some Experiences of Emma McChesney and Her Son, Jock continues Emma McChesney’s story from where Roast Beef, Medium left us. After a decade of travelling across America, the petticoat saleswoman has settled down in a New York flat to work as T. A. Buck Jr’s business partner. Still living with her son, who is now 21, Emma McChesney has difficulty adapting to Jock’s growing independence as he steps out into the burgeoning world of advertisement.
This volume’s pages are filled with Edna Ferber’s amusing tone as she shifts into a blossoming romance storyline in this second instalment of the Emma McChesney trilogy. First published in 1914, Personality Plus is a timeless read and ideal for fans of the Algonquin Round Table writers.
